I recommend this documentary and in special this chapter that is about the evolution of the architectonic design, planning and urbanization of the XX century. The documentary is narrated by the famous australian critic of arts, Robert Hughes. Very interesting

Almansa Castle

The castle is a moral lesson that stands proclaiming the grandeur of soul of the Spaniards of the Reconquist, who for the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary and the Holy Catholic Church gradually populated Spain with castles as they took back the country so that Muslims would never even think of returning. If they did, they would find this whole network of castles standing in their way.

Birmingham is nice to some extent, but there is nothing that remarkable about it. It doesn't seem to have much of an identity compared to other UK cities, which is odd for a "second largest". That said, I never did much more than loiter around the station when stopping by.

Hotelli Torni in Tampere looks decent at night. It's obvious it had a tight budget otherwise. Hotelli Torni in Helsinki is nicer and more valuable, not only because it's 85 years old, but also because it's an interesting example of the transition between historical and modern architecture.

>>53733438
Domtoren is probably the most notable one in The Netherlands, but just look at Amsterdam's skyline, and you'll see quite a few nice spires. Switzerland is probably the least impressive of them, yeah, but the Bern Minster is at least quite nice.

I tend to forget about London. It isn't something I need to think about. It has top business, it has top old architecture, it has density, it has sme good new architecture, it has a zillion different things being built. It's fine.

So forget London.
That leave Birmingham as the only city in the UK with a big city feel, in my opinion. It even has a (not great) skyline.
The buildings have some density. It feels like a place with white-collar jobs, whilst most other cities, in my opinion, still feel pretty blue collar and sort of... unimportant
I would hope that Birmingham would become a fashionable city. But the demographics are a problem.

I think it depends how quickly Birmingham can escape from 20th century architecture. It has many ugly buildings, definitely, and will probably have an ugly skyline for the new decade at least. But on street-level, there are some low-rise buildings which are modern, yet look alright.
I have seen a few images of a Scandinavian city which had an entirely modern region, and also a Polish city which had an entirely modern neighbourhood. All low-rise. And they looked decent. Decent designs. We don't have that in England. I cannot think of a single post-Victorian plan that actually looks good. Birmingham might eventually become that.

Personally I find Swedish churches to be a mixed bag. Many of the old ones were renovated to look more like "continental" European churches than their original forms, such as Uppsala Cathedral and even Lund Cathedral, which had its historic towers purposely torn in the late 19th century. The Riddarholmen Church and German Church in Stockholm are alright, though.
>>
>>53735585
I like them, and I find their brick-work to be really impressive. Then again, most larger Nordic churches from the 19th century are of brick, so maybe I've just been too exposed to them.

Too many options there, so I'll narrow it down to my favourite building over 400 metres, in which case it would be this. I just like its smooth surface and curvy shape, plus it goes well with its sister towers.

>>53745652
Depends what angle you look at it from.
>>
>>53746046
Even from the usual touristy view, Pudong was already unbalanced. I'd say Shanghai Tower balanced it more, because it's on opposite sides of the similarly tall Shanghai TV Tower, both with clusters surrounding them, which creates for a sort of symmetrical frame. All they need is a couple mid-sized towers to fill the gap in the middle with. You can even see it's perfectly aligned with the building with the balls in the middle down there.

>>53754361
what are those
>>
>>53754385
They were apartment blocks built in the 60s in Glasgow when the city council wanted to move loads of people out of the city centre into the suburbs but had nowhere to put them. They are all over the city and all of them are hideous but the red road flats are probably the most famous.

They were demolished in 2015 but it was a disaster and two of them stayed half upright for days so they had to create an exclusion zone around them in case they fell down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvJi0ses9AA

Big commies in Glasgow that ended up being demolished because 3rd world tier ghettos formed around them. Oh well,

Iconic, yes, but I've always felt it to be a little boring. I do like the gradually rising and falling heights, though. Not many cities have it as nice as LA does. I'm partial to art deco and glass, so the small window modern and international look just doesn't suit my fancy

2 of our 3 largest cities don't really have anything one because it became a city quite recently and the second one because it was 90% destroyed during WW2

but yeah we have some nice centres

Norway had a really low population in the Middle Ages and later on, I guess it couldn't really support making of any historical centres besides Oslo

We were wealthy until the black death, so many buildings are still standing from medieval times, even if it's mainly churches. After the black death most our population died off and we were annexed. But most "historical" buildings here came during the 19th century, as it was the first time in centuries Norwegian money actually went to Norwegian land. A lot was lost during WW2, but mainly in smaller towns.

Kowloon walled city is something that interests me greatly. I wasn't even a sentient being when they destroyed it.
